Interesting idea. Can you show us your test (or simulation test) result that Neutron can support up to 100k managed node.

I'm 99.9% sure, for scaling above 100k managed node,
we do not really need to split the openstack to multiple smaller openstack,
or use significant number of extra controller machine.
The problem is openstack using the right tools SQL/AMQP/(zk),
but in a wrong way.
Periodic updates can be avoided almost in all cases
The new data can be pushed to the agent just when it needed.
The agent can know when the AMQP connection become unreliable (queue or connection loose),
and needs to do full sync.
Also the agents when gets some notification, they start asking for details via the
AMQP -> SQL. Why they do not know it already or get it with the notification ?
